The Twitter account of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has been restored and verified one day after it was unverified due to a technical glitch.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Vice President, Mr Laolu Akande on Saturday explained that some external attempts were made to gain unauthorized access to the Vice President’s Twitter Account.
But on Sunday, the Vice President wished Nigerians especially Muslims Barka Da Sallah from his now verified Twitter account, showing that the account had been fully restored.
All the tweets, media and multimedia that appeared to have been erased have all been restored as well.
Wishing Muslims a happy celebration, the VP tweeted, “Barka Da Sallah to all our Muslim compatriots. As the commemoration of this important festival-Eid Al-Adha- goes on, we are reminded of the virtues of unity that underpin our nation, even as we share in the joy and the fellowship of the celebrations.
“Our prayer is that in this nation, peace will reign and together Nigeria will prosper and progress in our time.”
Nigerians on the social media platform had raised alarm over supposed tampering with the account of Prof. Osinbajo with many demanding that Twitter provide answers as to why Vice President Osinbajo’s account was unverified.
